THANK GOD THERE'S SOMEONE ELSE! I'm also pretty darn open with food-- a handful of things I'm super not keen on (uni, mackerel, lampredotto... um...yeah, a short list-- I'm sure there are things I haven't tried that are gnarly to me (have not tried fresh durian, natto, lutefisk, surstroming)), but also black truffle/tartuffo, which appears to be rated as amazingly delectable by so many people, and to me it tastes like ass. ASS, I SAY! Not a popular opinion, I guess.
